Tacky’s an odd bird, or Penguin rather, who likes to do splashy cannonballs and greet his companions with a loud “What’s happening?” In fact, he’s something of an eccentric, which wouldn’t be a problem if all the other penguins weren’t such . . . conformists.
In their usual zany style, Lester and Munsinger demonstrate the problems and advantages of being an individual. Now in Spanish, Tacky is perfect for children learning Spanish and for Spanish-speaking children.
